Dear Dr. Ellie:
Is it okay to use MI paste along with the cleansing system and the xylitol? Again thank you for your advice.
Using the system that I recommend raises the pH in the mouth at appropriate times and encourages minerals from saliva to go back into teeth. My system will work on its own perfectly – no problem.
The question is whether MI paste would improve the results: I doubt it. I think this is an expensive product that is basically derived from dried milk!
I doubt that MI paste will interfere with the system – but I do not know. I am not sure how MI paste raises the pH – my concern is that it may contain sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) – which I cannot recommend. Because there are patents on the product it is very difficult to tell exactly what it contains.
I would suggest using my system alone for about four weeks. In four weeks on my system your teeth should be starting to feel great – and look great. Then try adding MI paste and see if you notice any improvements/benefits. You should be able to “tell” if this makes things better/worse or no difference.
I would be interested to hear the outcome – and what you think at the conclusion of this experiment!
